Customized for your state

Your students' needs are unique and no one understands them better than you. While no nationally offered program will be perfect for every class out of the box, we feel confident about our customization offerings to help teachers meet both state standards and the specific needs of each student. Whether your state follows the NGSS or has its own approach, we’ve mapped our curricula to your state’s standards. All of our core programs integrate

  • Three-dimensional learning
  • Formative assessment
  • Hands-on learning
  • Phenomena and problems

Highly reviewed by EdReports

Our middle school program, Issues and Science was developed at the Lawrence Hall of Science in response to the need for high quality, three dimensional, phenomena driven curriculum. It has earned the second-highest overall scores for middle school science curriculum.

Our middle school program, Issues and Science, is so customizable that we’ve created a drag and drop tool to help teachers design a sequence that works best for their students.
